My Best Muffin Recipes

Best Muffin Recipes
I love versatile, delicious muffins. A great portable breakfast, they are perfect in a lunchbox and make a lovely snack with a cup of tea or a glass of milk. My late Mom was very nutrition conscious and her baked goods were generally a rare, much looked forward to treat. However muffins were something she made often and for me, they have always been comfort food. I have a huge number of muffin recipes, many of which I have already blogged and of these, the ones in this post are among my favourites.

The first muffin recipe I ever made as a child was Bran Muffins.  A lot of my muffin recipes have a story behind them and that one is no exception. Many of my muffin recipes have evolved or been adapted from my late Mom’s collection – all of them are a labour of love and appear regularly on our family table.

Some of my Best Muffin Recipes

Carrot Walnut Bran Muffins

Full of wholesome ingredients, these Carrot Walnut Bran Muffins are a filling and tasty muffin with just a bit of crunch.

Blueberry Chia Muffins with Lemon and Ginger

An adaptation of one of my late Mom’s recipes, my Blueberry Chia Muffins with Lemon and Ginger are a light and tasty treat. You can make them with fresh or frozen, unthawed blueberries so you may even have all the ingredients already on hand!

Cinnamon Streusel Yogurt Muffins

Tender and lightly spiced, my Cinnamon Streusel Yogurt Muffins are very popular with a cup of tea on busy afternoons at our house.

Banana and Chia Seed Muffins

Chock full of goodness, my Banana and Chia Seed Muffins are a great way to use up those leftover or just past their best bananas.

Easy and Delicious Muffin Recipes

My Mom’s Jam Muffins

I have lovely memories of My Mom’s Jam Muffins. Using a blend of whole wheat and white flour makes these muffins a bit more nutritious and they can be made with any flavour jam you have on hand.

    Hi April ,
    I baked your cinnamon streusel yogurt muffins for breakfast this morning . I skipped the streusel and used vanilla yogurt , 1/4 cup of orange juice , orange peel and a tsp. of flax . They are absolutely delicious ! I wanted to take something to a friend on Sunday so I’m baking your jam muffins . I made some peach jam ( so easy with a crockpot and immersion blender ) so will try it with that .
    It’s nice knowing these are your Mom’s recipes . We always had delicious meals at your place . Your Mom was the one who got me using rice vinegar which is now a staple in my pantry . I look forward to trying more recipes .

    • Hi Ruby, I like your variation on my Cinnamon Streusel Muffins. I’ll have to give that a try! Hope you enjoy the jam muffins – they will be extra special made with your homemade jam! There’s nothing like fresh Ontario peaches, I can just imagine how delicious your jam is! My Mom really was a wonderful cook and I’m so happy I can share her recipes 🙂 I have such happy memories of visits with you, Aunt Trish and the girls at Mom and Dad’s house when we were all growing up 🙂 xo

  9. Hi April, this is a delicious collection of muffins, I can’t wait to try a couple just in time for our lovely fall weather.

  10. My favorite is obviously your cinnamon muffins, as I love everything with cinnamon, but I admit – I’d loooooooove to try your blueberry muffins.
    Funny but blueberries are not well known here…… so looking at them brings back childhood memories (when we lived in the US)

    • Thank you so much, Winnie! I didn’t realise there weren’t blueberries in Israel – it’s hard when something you remember when you were a kid isn’t easy to get where you live now! Blueberries weren’t common in the UK when I first arrived over 20 years ago. In fact, my husband used to refuse to eat them! He loves them now though 🙂

  11. It is next to impossible to choose my favorite, April. I love them all and they all sound wonderful!Pinning and tweeting

  12. April,
    I very seldom make muffins anymore, but your lemon zucchini and chia muffins sound so good. I’ll have to get out those old muffin tins!
